INTRODUCTION 



In the following pages I have attempted to place on record 
what I have been able to ascertain about the Spedding Family 
from researches limited both by time and means, but I fear 
that my efforts have fallen far short of my original idea. 

The principal objects of my work have been : — 

(1) To collect, rapidly, as complete and accurate a record 
as possible of the births, marriages, and deaths of 
members of the Spedding Family, giving the parish 
or church where each took place. 

(2) To show, as far as could be proved, the connection 

between the various branches now living. 

(3) To illustrate my work with any old family portraits, 
autographs, and memorial windows and tablets, 
which would be of interest to the family generally, 
and to the future generations in particular. 

(4) To add outline pedigrees of interest of such families 
as, by marriage, became allied to the Spcddings, 
where not already given in "Burke," and other 
standard works. 

The result of my labours has produced an essentially modern 
account of the family, and beyond unearthing several earlier 
branches, which will be found in Chap. I. (but which I have 
as yet been unable to mould into shape), the actual early 
genealogy of the family has still to be written. 

I feel, however, that a base for " future operations " has 
been established. 

I am chiefly indebted to Mr. Carlisle J. S. Spedding for 
lending me the MSS. Pedigree of the Family, written by his 
grandfather, from which I obtained many details of value, 
and also for his great interest at all times in my work, and his 
continuous advice and help throughout. 



It would be impossible to name all those who have so kindly 
helped me, but my thanks are specially due to the late Colonel 
R. T. Wolfe, the Eev. H. B. Swanzy, Miss Deey, Mrs. 
Squarey, Mrs. Mostyn, the Baroness von Hiigel, and Mr. 
W, N. Thompson, for the information they have given; to 
Mr. C. A. Benn, Mr. H. Frowde, Mr. E. H. Benn, the Rev. 
E. G. Brownrigg, Major Carlisle, and Colonel Littledale, for 
kindly lending me pedigrees of their families ; to Mrs. Walker, 
Miss Quayle, Miss S. F. Spedding, and Mr. M. H. Quayle 
for permitting me to reproduce portraits in their pos- 
session ; to Mr. J. R. Blake for his excellent drawings of the 
Arms of Spedding, Brownrigg, Benn, and Froude ; to the 
Eev. W. G. D. Fletcher for reviewing my Royal Descents; 
to Messrs. Elliott and Fry, London, for permission to use their 
copyright photograph of the late James Anthony Froude ; and 
to Messrs. Thom and Co. for the careful manner in which they 
have produced this book. 

I have also to acknowledge information derived from the 
works of Burke, Foster, Fox-Davies, and Crisp; and Bernau's 
" Intcrnaiional Genealogical Directory " has been a great 
help to me. 

I should be most grateful for any additions or corrections in 
the present work, and for any changes which may take place 
in the future.

CHAPTER I. 

EARLY SPEDDINGS IN WESTMORLAND AND 
CUMBERLAND. 

Sir Bernard Burke iu his Lauded Gentry referring to tlie 
Spedding Family states : — ' ' This family which came originally 
from Ireland was afterwards resident for some generations in 
Scotland. The first who settled in Cumberland about the year 
1685, was Edward Spedding, who m. Sara Carlisle, a co-heir, 
&c." 

With all due deference to so able an authority on Family 
History as Sir Bernard Burke, I fear he has erred in the assertion 
that the family originated in Ireland, and afterwards settled in 
Cumberland in 1685. In fact, the opposite is almost conclu- 
sively proved, firstly, by extracts from old County Histories, 
secondly, by Wills, kc, proved at Carlisle as early as 1603, and 
lastly, by the fact that no records are to be found in Ireland, as 
far as I am aware, of the existence of the family on that side of 
the Irish Sea prior to 1746, when Henry Spedding, grandson of 
the above Edward and Sarah, settled in Dublin, from whom de- 
scended the Speddings of Ballynamudagh, Windgates, co. Wick- 
low. 

Nicholas and Burn, in their " ILhtorti of Cumherhmd and West- 
mnrhnxl " (Vol. I., page 389), treating of the parish of Kirkby- 
thore, CO. Westmorland, state: — "In the reign of Queen Eliza- 
beth, in the accounts of the profits of the Rectory of Kirkbytbore 
in the years 1572 and 1573, there is set down a deduction to Sir 
John Spedding, curate of Milburn, for each year, £4 13.<t. \d." 

From the year 1600 onwards (I have not ascertained whether any 
were proved before that date, but I feel sure there were) various 
Wills, &c., were proved at Carlisle under the names of Spedding, 
Speding, and Speddinge, of different parishes near Appleby in 
Westmorland, such as Bongate, Bolton, Kingsmealburn, Knock, 
Colby, Longraarton, and Kirkbythore, and also of the following 
parishes in West Cumberland: Skirwith, Kirkland, Milburn, and 
Culgaith. 



Of thfcse the majority seem to have been yeomen or small land- 
owners. The Speddings of Skirwith prove Wills almost consecu- 
tively from 1600-1760, as also the Speddings of Colby. 

About 1700 various members of the family appear to have 
moved across to Whitehaven and its adjoining parishes, for here 
the name occurs frequently at Whitehaven, Hensingham, Dis- 
tington, and other places. 

Here they appear to have rendered valuable services to the 
Lowther Family. The first mention is in a rental of Sir John 
Lowther, of Whitehaven, 1697, where the tenant of Akebank, or 
possibly Aikbank, near Whitehaven, was Edward Spedding, for 
a term of 21 years. 

Then John Spedding, eldest son of Edward, was Land Steward 
to Sir James Lowther, and his brother, Carlisle Spedding, was 
chief engineer and overseer of the Mines at Whitehaven. Both 
these are mentioned in the Will of Sir James Lowther in 1754, 
who gives "unto John Spedding, my Steward, £1,000 for his 
long and faithful services, and for like account I give to his 
brother, Carlisle Spedding, £500." 

In 1722, Mathew Spedding mentions in his Will his cousins 
John and Carlisle Spedding, appointing the former his trustee. 

From the above brief reKvmf it wovild appear that the Speddings 
settled in Cumberland and Westmorland certainly in the six- 
teenth century, if not earlier, and it is probable that the family 
originated there, and that later one of them, Henry, crossed to 
Ireland, where he appears to have settled, while at the same time 
several of his cousins came over for educational and other pur- 
poses. Rev. Thomas Spedding was at Trinity College, Dublin, 
about this time, and his brother, James, afterwards of Summer- 
grove, was in Dublin on business.

THE SPEDDING FAMILY. 

Spedding, of Skirwith. 

The first Will proved at Carlisle, co. Cumberland, after 1600, 
is that of a certain Anthony Spedding, of Skirwith, Kirkland, 
CO. Cumberland, in 1602, and from that and other Wills of the 
same time and place the following is apparently the lineage of 
this branch of the Family: — 

SPEDDING, of Skirwith, Kirkland, in the co. of Cumber- 
land, married and had three sons and one daughter, as follows: — 

I. Anthony Spedding, of Kirkland, co. Cumberland, " single- 
man," whose Will was dated 30 March and proved at 
Carlisle, co. Cumberland, 20 April, 1602, in which he 
mentions his brothers, Henry and John Spedding, and 
their children, and also his sister and her husband, and 
desires that his body may be buried in Kirkland Church- 
yard. Died 1602 ; unmarried. 

II. John Spedding, of Skirwith, in the parish of Kirkland, 

CO. Cumberland, m. Jane, dau. of , and d. in 1610. 

Will dated 20 June and proved at Carlisle, 23 Oct., 1610, 
in which he mentions his wife and children, and desires 
his body to be buried in Kirkland Churchyard. The wit- 
nesses to this Will are his brother, Henry Spedding, and 
his brother-in-law, Thomas Burrell. He had issue: — 
1. Thomas Spedding, living 1610, mentioned in his 

father's Will. 
1. Jane Spedding, living 1602 and 1610, mentioned in 
the Will of her uncle, Antony Spedding, and also in 
her father's Will. 

III. Henry Spedding, of Ulsbie, Co. Cumberland, was a witness 
to the Will of his brother, John Spedding, aforesaid, in 
1610. He m. , dau. of , and had issue: — 

1. Barbara Spedding, mentioned in the Will of her uncle, 
Antony Spedding, and living 1602. 

2. Isabell Spedding, also mentioned in the Will of her 
uncle, Anthony Spedding, and living 1602. 

T. Elizabeth Spedding, living 1602. Mentioned in the Will 
of her brother, Anthony Spedding, of Kirkland. She in. 

before 1602, Thomas Burrell, son of Burrell, and had 

issue, one son and three daughters, all living 1602, and 
mentioned in the Will of Anthony Spedding aforesaid. 



Here there occurs a break in the sequence of Wills of Speddings, 
of Skirwith, proved at Carlisle, as the next Will proved is that of 
Peter Speddiug in 1738, and of his father, John Spedding, of 
Skirwith, in 1742. The lineage then continues: —

Cumberland, yeoman (son of Spedding), 

m. , dau. of , and d. 1742. Will 

dated 27 Feb., 1738, and proved at Carlisle,

(2) Thomas Spedding, living 1742, and 
mentioned in his grandfather's Will. 

(This is jDrobably identical with 
Thomas Spedding, of Woodside, 
Brougham, co. Westmorland, who d. 
1739, and had a son, Thomas Sped- 
ding, who is mentioned in the Will 
of his uncle, Henry Spedding. 
Admon. of his father's goods granted 
9 Oct., 1739.) 

(3) Peter Spedding, of , living 1742,

lisle, 19 July, 1763. 



Spedbing, of Brackenbar. 
Westmorland. 



From various Wills, &c., proved at Carlisle, and without look- 
ing up the parish registers concerned, the following is the descent 
of the Speddings, of Brackenbar: — 

SPEDDING, of Brackenbar, Westmorland, m. , and 

had issue : — 

I. George Spedding, of Brackenbar, co. Westmorland, m. 
Francis Elizabeth, dau. of . He d. 1686; Will dated 



13 Dec, 1685, and proved at Carlisle, 2 June, 1686, in 
which he mentions his brother, Thomas Spedding, as one 
of the executors, and leaves legacies, <kc., to his issue, as 
follows : — 

1. Mary Spedding, living 1685, mentioned in her father's 

Will. rn. after 1727, Bell, and had issue, four 

children, who are mentioned in the Will of her brother, 
John Spedding, of Brackenbar. 

1. John Spedding, of Brackenbar, Bongate, co. Westmor- 
land, living 16o5, executor of his father's Will; d. 
apparently unmarried, as he mentions no wife or chil- 
dren, in 1743. Will dated 16 March, 1742/3, and 
proved at Carlisle, 11 May, 1743. 

2. Ellinor Spedding, living and married before 1727, men- 
tioned in the Will of her uncle, Thomas Spedding, of 
Fleetholme, Musgrave, Westmorland; m. Richard- 
son, and had issue. 

2. Martin Spedding, of Hilton Bacon, Appleby, West- 
morland, ///. , and d. 1762. Will dated 18 May, 

and proved at Carlisle, 17 Nov., 1762. They had 

issue . — 

(1) Ann Spedding, living 1762, executrix of her 
father's Will. 

(2) Elizabeth Spedding, living 1762, mentioned in her 
father's Will. 

II. Thomas Spedding, of Fleetholme, Musgrave, co. Westmor- 
land, whose Will was dated 11 Dec, 1722, and proved at 

Carlisle, 7 June, 1727. in. Sarah , living 1727, one 

of the executors of his Will, and d. apparently without 
issue 1727 (see Part II., Chapt. VIII.). 

I. Mary Spedding, living 1727, mentioned in the Will of her 

brother, Thomas Spedding, aforesaid; ///. Loy> and 

had issue, who are also mentioned in the Will of their 
uncle, Thomas Spedding. 

(This Will is witnessed by George Glenton and Simeon 
Pindar, the latter being Vicar of Great Musgrave in 1719, 
and both may possibly be related to the branch of Spedding, 
of Colby, as one of Robert Spedding's sisters married a 
Mr. Pindar, and he married a Mrs. or Miss Glenton.) 



Spedding, of Bolton. 
Westmorland. 

From various Wills and Letters of Administration proved at 
Carlisle the following would appear to be the outline pedigree of 
this branch of the Family: — 

SPEDDING, of Bolton, Morland, co. Westmorland, m. 

, and had issue: — 

I. James Spedding, of Bolton, Morland, co. Westmorland, m. 

Isabelle , and d. 1604. Letters of Admon. were 

granted to his widow, Isabelle, at Carlisle, 7 Nov., 1604. 
II. Mathew Spedding, living 1604, mentioned in the Admon. 
of his brother as " owing him 5 pecks of bigge." 
and probably a third son, 

III. Thomas Spedding, of Bolton, co. Westmorland, m. Isabell 
, and had issue : — 

1. John Spedding, of Northend, Bolton, co. Westmorland 
(was granted with his brother, Thomas, letters of 
Admon. of the goods of their mother, Isabell Spedding, 
inventory dated 25 March, 1588, and proved 26 Feb.,

CHAPTER IV. 

SPEDDING OF BALLYNAMUDAGH, WINDGATES, CO. 
WICKLOW, IRELAND. 

The fourth sou of John Spedding, of Whitehaven, co. Cumber- 
land, by his wife, Ann Richardson (see Chapter II. )> was: — 

Henry Spedding, of College Green, Dublin. b. at 
Whitehaven, co. Cumberland, 1720. He went over 
to Ireland about the middle of the ISth century, 
and became well known by his racehorses, " Irish 
Hero " and " The Pothereen Mare," and others, about 
which there are several legends.* He m. firstly, Eliza- 
beth, dau. of , and had issue: — 

(1) Ann Spedding, who was buried at St. Andrew's 
Church, Dublin, 20 Aug., 1746. 



* Whether Henry Spedding ever pos.sessed much wealth is uncertain, but 
of tiiree things there is little doubt. Fir-stly, he had several race horses of 
value : secondly, he was fond of ganiblinsr, and laying wagers for high stakes : 
and lastly, when he died, he did not leave much to his heirs. The traditions 
connected with him and his horses are nimxerous and not without interest. 
On one occasion he laid a bet of £10-5 a side that liis famous horse, the 
" Pothereen Mare " would cover 200 miles on the Cmragh race-course in 26 
hours. The mare accomplished the fe; t. doing 100 miles the first day in about 
12} hours, and another 100 on the second day in 12^ hom-s. The horse was 
ridden by the Earl of Antrim's stable boy. An account of this may be found 
in the " London Magazine" or Gentlemen's Monthly InteUigence for April, 1753, 
on page 223, as follows : — 

" Curragh. 
" Wednesday, 4th April, 1753. 

" A black cropt mare, belonging to Mr. Spedding, went over the Curragh 
100 miles in about 12 hours and a half, and the day before 100 miles over 
the same ground, in 12 horns and a quarter, by which she won a match 
of 100 guineas a side, between a gentleman and Mr. Spedding. The mare 
was allowed 2G hours to go the 200 miles, but performed it in about 25. 
A little boj' belonging to the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Antrim, rode her the 
two days. 'Tis thought the mare \vi\\ do well." 

There is also a legend in the family that on one occasion when the " Pothereen 
Miirc " was going to race, he took his wife's rosary (who was said to be a Roman 
f'iitholic) and put it round the horse's neck, and that she won the race. 
Some speculation exists as to why Henry Spedding called his son Demoivi-e, 
or as it is sometimes spelt in documents— Demoiver. One tradition says that 
Henrv had a French horse called D'Moivre, and that he called his son after it. 
Another theory, which is infinitely more probable, is that he was called after 
Domoivre's " T?heory of Chances," a French work on which Henry Spedding 
placed much faith. Whatever the derivation of the name was Demoivre Spedding 
would not have it perpetuated, and is said to have left his ciuse on any of hia 



29 

He m. secondly, circa, 1750, Lucy FitzGerald 
cousin of James, 1st Duke of Leinster, who d. 30 
March, 1773, and was buried at St. Andrew's Church, 
Dublin. lie d. at Kilcullen, co. Kildare, 29 March, 

children who called any of their sons after him, and this seeitis to be borne out by 
fact, as there is no other actual Dcmoivre in tlie family, the nearest attemiit 
to it being a granflson of Denioivre Speclding whose baptismal certificate shows 
his name as " Demoiara Spedding," but who was I believe later called Demoivre. 

An extract from the "Universal Advertiser" for Thiirsday, I4th March, 
17ii4, contains an advertisement about Henry v'?pedding's " Coalition Colt" at 
Castlebellingham, dated 7th March, I7r>4, and states that he purchased the colt 
froni Sir Marmaduke Wyvil, ii\ the Spring of 1753, for 400 guineas. The horse'-s 
pedigree is given as below : — 

" This is to Certify that the bay colt which I sold to Mr. Spedding, 
" by the name of the " Coalition Colt" was bred by me, and got by tlie 
" Godolphin Arabian, and out of an own sister to Antelope, which was 
" got by Balgratle the Second, which got Shrimp, Volunteer, Bashaw, 
" Garnet. Primate, and Creeper. Antelope's dam was got by a son of 
" Old Tiller out of Volunteer's dam. Volunteer's dam was got by the 
" Bartlet Clulders, her dam by the said Duke of Devonshire's Arabian, out 
" of a daughter of the famous Pelham Bay Barb, which mare was full 
" sister to the Duke of Somerset's Westbury, which had the wliip at New- 
" market. 

" (Signed) Marmaduke Wyvil." 

The following extraordinary letter and epitaph may be found in the " Grand 
magazine" or Universal Intelligence, and Monthly Chronicle for May, 1759: — 

To the Publisher. 

Sir, — Having read of the death of Mr. Henry Spedding, I have taken 
the liberty of sending you the following lines, which I hope you'll publisli 
in your next : it would be a pity a man so remarkable in life, should steal 
out of it without an epitaph : j'oiu- compliance will much oblige man}- 
of your readers, and especially, 

your most obedient humble servant, 

G. K. 
May 10th, 1759. 



" Beneath this stone Hal Spedding lies at last, 

" Compell'd by fate to stand that dreadful cast, 

" Death shakes the box, and casts a wishful eye, 

" Upon the stakes, then slyly cogs a die, 

" Robs him at one deep nick of all his store, 

" Of all he ever rob'd mankind before. 

" The game is done, and his last cards are play'd 

" His spirit's fled to Pluto's gloomy shade, 

" Deprived of all he ever yet poss'd 

" Sure now within the box the bones may rest." 

Whether anyone ever put up this epitaph to his memory cannot be said, 
as he was buried at St. Andrew's Church, Dubhn, 2nfl May, 1759, and in reply 
to a recent letter to the \icar of that Church, asking whether there was any me- 
morial tablet to the members of the Spedding Family buried there, I was informed 
that the old chmch was totally destroyed by hre in 1860, and all monuments 
perished with it. 

There is to this day in the possession of this branch of the family an old 
china bowl, which tradition .says was tlmce filled with sovereigns, the winnings 
of the " Pothereen Mare," and the descendants of Henry Spedding — DemoivTe 
and his son, WilUam Spedding— are said to have been christened from tliis bowl, 
which is now known as the " Spedding Christening Bowl."

CHAPTER V. 

SPEDDING, OF SUMMERGROVE. 

The fourth and youngest son of Edward Spedding, of White- 
haven, CO. Cumberland, by his wife, Sara Carlisle (see Chapter 
II.), was : — 

Carlisle Spedding,^- of Whitehaven, b. at Whitehaven, co. 
Cumberland, 10 Sept., 1695. He was Agent to Sir James 
Lowther, of Whitehaven. He m. at Holy Trinity Church, 
Whitehaven, on 24 April, 1716, Sarah, dau. of Edward 
and Jane Towerson, who was h. 30 April, 1696, and d. 10 
July, 1771. He was killed at Whitehaven, 8 Aug., 1755, 
by an explosion of firedamp in one of the mines. They 
both lie buried at Holy Trinity Church, Whitehaven, where 
there is a monument erected to their memory by their son, 
James Spedding, of whom hereafter. They had issue: — 

1. John Spedding, h. at Whitehaven, 3 May, 1717. He 
d. 9 Nov., 1719, and was buried at Holy Trinity 
Church, Whitehaven, 11 Nov., 1719. 



* Carlisle Spedding was a celebrated Engineer in the town of Whitehaven, co. 
Cumberland, and was noted for his skill, perseverance, and ready ingenuity. 
The Monthly Magazine of 1817 states that " Cumberland has the merit of the 
discovery of gasUghts, by Mr. Spedding, of Whitehaven, Agent to Sir James 
Lowther, and the town of Whitehaven was the first to be hghted by gas from the 
coal pits by pii^es." Concerning the same subject WheUaiUs History of Cumberland, 
1800, states : — " About the middle of last century (i.e., about 1750) Mr. Spedding, 
colliery agent, lighted his office by gas led from the pits by pipes, and he offered 
to lay on a su])ply for the town, but his offer was not accepted." According to 
the Monthly Magazine above cjuoted, the local authorities discovered the value 
anfl advantage of this offer later on. 

Under the patronage, and at the expense of Sir James Lowther, CarUsle 
Spedding greatly inx])roved the coal mines of Whitehaven, and to him may ahnost 
entirely be attributed the success of these valuable works, which were a source of 
immense fortune to Sir James Lowther. 

In order to learn the best system of mining, he is said to have gone to Newcastle 
and engaged himself as a common labourer, and his im]iortance was only discovered 
when anxious enquiries were made concerning his safety after a colliery accident. 
Recognising the difficulties and dangers of lighting the mines when they were in a 
tlangcrous state from the presence of " firedamp," he invented a primitive Davy- 
lamp with steel wheel and flints on the following principle : — A man used to turn 
by a handle, a disc of steel with great velocity against a block of flint, and the 
constant showers of sparks thus produced were supposed to be incapable of 
igniting the gas. This machine is said to be still in existence, but, imfortunately, 
it did not ])reveut him losing his life by an explosion of gas in one of the mines on 
8th August, 1755.

* The following lines are attributed to the pen of the Rev. Thomas Spedding, 
on the sign of the " Horse and Lamb " over the gateway to the Temple : — 

As by the Templar's Holds you go 
The Horse and Lamb displayed 
In emblematic figures show 
The merits of their trade. 

Their cUents may infer from these 
How just is their profession 
The Lamb — sets forth their innocence. 
The Horse — their expedition. 

" Oh ! happy people — happy Isle " 
May neighljoiu-ing nations say. 
Where you get Justice without guile. 
And Law without delay. 



The Answer. 

Deluded men, these Holds forego. 
Nor trust these cunning elves 
These artful emblems serve to show 
The Clients, not themselves. 



'Tis ah ! a trick, 'tis ah ! a sham 
By wliich they mean to cheat you 
You'll find yourselves the harmless Lamb 
And they — the Wolves that eat you. 

Nor let the dream of no delay 
To these dark courts misguide you 
You are the Showy Horse — and they 
The Jockeys that will ride you !

CHAPTER VI. 

VARIOUS SPEDDINGS OF YORKSHIRE, DURHAM, &o. 

The following short pedigrees of various branches of the Sped- 
ding Family are recorded as they have been furnished by ths 
members of families concerned, and in the majority of cases have 
not been verified with the parish registers or other local documents 
quoted. So far the attempt to connect them with the main stem 
has proved unsuccessful, but it is hoped by thus recording them 
some future genealogist in the family may be able to ascertain 
the connecting link. 

The descent of Charles Spedding, the famous Engineer, who is 
mentioned in Mr. E. F. Knight's " Where three Empires meet," 
is apparently from a Yorkshire branch of the Family, who have 
been settled at Gilling for several generations. According to mem- 
bers of the family now living, an old box of family documents and 
papers covering some 350 years was accidentally destroyed by fire 
a few years ago, so that without an extensive search in the Public 
Record Offices and local Registers no definite dates of marriages, 
&c., are available, and the pedigx-ee is therefore only given from 
Mr. Charles Spedding's great-grandfather, who was 
Francis Spedding, of Gilling, Richmond, co. Yorks, who m. Mary 
Crawford (who d. 1828), and had issue, seventeen children, of 
whom the following are some. (He d. about 1830, and was buried 
at Gilling) : — 

I. Francis Spedding, of Gilling, of whom presently. 
II. Christopher Spedding.

Kirkby Lonsdale, from 1866 to 1906, previous to which he was senior curate of 
St. Matthew's, Westminster. During his incumbency and largely throuo;h lais 
instrumentality the present Church of St. John's, Hutton-Roof," was rebuilt, 
the foundation stone being laid 25th June, 1880, and the consecration by the 
Bishop of Ca,rUsle taking place on 8th August, 1881. Much of the interior 
decoration of the Cliurch was provided at his own expense. The Lord's Table 
of carved oak, was given as a thankoffering to God, for being permitted to assist 
in rebuilding a House for His praise and service. The Pulvit was given in memory 
of his parents, and m 1886 he gave an oak Chancel Screen, and also the Font. 
There is also an ancient pewter Sacramental Service of three pieces, which he pre- 
sented to the Church, now enclosed in an oak case with inscription tliereon. 

The description of a stained glass memorial window to his niece, and other 
memorials will be found in Part II., Chapter VITI., under " Hutton-Roof."

ENTRIES FROM VARIOUS PARISH REGISTERS AND

The following entries from vai'ious Parish Registers are here entered 
as the author has been unable to identify them with any particiilar

anyone carrying on the research, and to prevent the obvious repetition 
of labour.

CHAPTER VII. 

FAMILY SEATS AND PROPERTIES. 

Armathwaite Hall, situated at the head of Basseuthwaite Lake, 
about seven miles north-west of Keswick, co. Cumberland, 
containing about 500 acres, and consisting of a house standing 
in its own grounds, thickly wooded with Scotch firs, was pur- 
chased by James Spedding, son of John Spedding, of White- 
haven, from the Highmore family in 1748, and after remain- 
ing in the family for about 50 years was sold by John Sped- 
ding, of Mirehouse, to Sir Frederick Fletcher Vane in 1796- 
98, and has since passed to Thomas Hartley, Esq., the present 
owner. The old house was, however, entirely pulled down in 
1880 and rebuilt, and the area of the original estate has been 
more than doubled. 

John Spedding, of Mirehouse, also owned property in 
Loweswater, Isell, Torpenhow, Gatesgarth, and Threlkeld. 

See Hutchinson's " History of Cumberland ," 1794. Vol. 
II., page 234.

Vol. IV., page 18. 
Whellan's " History of Cumberland and Westmor- 
land;' 1860, page 284. 

Mirehouse, situated on the east side of Basseuthwaite Lake, about 
4i miles north-west of Keswick, co. Cumberland, contained 
(in 1897) 1,150 acres, consisting of a large house and grounds, 
with extensive plantations over a great part of the adjoining 
mountain of Skiddaw. It became the property of John Sped- 
ding, formerly of Armathwaite Hall, in 1802, by the devise 
of Thomas Story, whose father acquired it by marriage with 
the heiress of Gregg. It was formerly the demesne of the 
manor of High Basseuthwaite, and was purchased of the Earl 
of Derby by Roger Gregg, grandfather of Joseph Gregg, who 
possessed it in 1688. Lord Tennyson, when at Oxford, was a 
great friend of James Spedding, the Historian, son of the 
above John Spedding, and used frequently to visit Mirehouse. 
In addition to the above there are about 300 acres of land at 
Heck, near Goole in Yorkshire, which have belonged to this

branch of the family for a great number of years. Both these 
estates are still in possession of Miss Spedding, of Mirehouse.

SuMMERGROVE, in the parish of Hensingham, li miles south-east 
of Whitehaven, co. Cumberland, containing 18 acres, was pur- 
chased by James Spedding, son of Carlisle Spedding, of White- 
haven, in 1761, from Anthony Grayson, and consists of a 
house standing in its own well-timbered grounds. It adjoins 
the property of Netherend, which forms part of the estate, 
containing 92 acres of land, which was commenced to be pur- 
chased by James Spedding, aforesaid, in 1760, from Henry 
and Elizabeth Todd. 

In addition to this there are about 380 acres of land at St. 
Bees, CO. Cumberland, also part of the estate, which was con- 
veyed to James Spedding, of Summergrove, 5 December, 
1778, from Robert Stainton. This estate is still in the pos- 
session of James W. H. P. Spedding, of Summergrove. 

Ballynamudagh, near Windgates, co. Wicklow, Ireland, contain- 
ing about 38 acres, and consisting of a house and grounds, was 
the residence of the Irish branch of the family for nearly 100 
years, being leased to Lucy Spedding, widow of Henry Sped- 
ding, of Dublin, by Chaworth, 6th Earl of Meath, on 15 May, 
1759, and released by Helena Margaret, widow of Robert Deey 
Spedding, to William, 11th Earl of Meath, on 7 April, 1854. 
This house has since been demolished, and the land built 
over with cottages, but there still exists on the Earl of Meath 's 
estate a Well, known as " Spedding's Well," which was 
erected by Robert D. Spedding about 1825 to prevent a " right 
of way " being established through his grounds to an older 
Well, which had formerly been used by the villagers.

Threlkeld Hall, mentioned above under Armathwaite Hall, was 
situated about 3 miles east of Keswick, co. Cumberland, and 
came to the Speddings, of Armathwaite Hall, by the marriage 
of James Spedding and Susannah Irton, of Threlkeld. 
According to Lyson's " Cumberland," Vol. IV., 1816, p. 108, 
the manor belonged at an early period to a family who took 
their name from the place. Sir Lancelot Threlkeld, the last 
male heir, left three daughters, one of whom brought Threl- 
keld to the Pickerings; the Hall and demesne lands passed 
from the Pickerings by marriage to the Irtons, and from the 
latter in like manner to the Speddings.

btrland and Westmorland," by William Jackson, f.s.a. (Re- 
print from Vol. III., page 348, " Transactions of the Cumber- 
land, and Westmorland Antiquarian Society "), there is an 
interesting description of a house in Whitehaven, at the corner 
of Scotch-street and Roper-street, and opposite the gates of 
Holy Trinity Church, which was built by James Spedding 
about 1745, and sold in 1868. After giving a brief outline 
of the family history, the author calls particular attention to 
the architecture of the door of this house, which may be seen 
to this day.

The following inscription is to be found on a tombstone in the 
above cemetery to Henry and Samuel Warren Spedding, the 
sons of Rev. William Spedding, m.a. During a severe storm 
a tree fell on the stone and cracked it in two places, which, in 
addition to its age, makes it hard to decipher : — 

" Sacred

At the east end of the north aisle and on the north wall of 
the aisle there is a beautiful stained glass window to the 
memory of Elizabeth Spedding, which was put in by the late 
Mrs. Spedding, of Mirehouse. It consists of three lights, in the 
first of which there is a beautiful figure of the Virgin Mary, 
and at her feet the text, " Ecce ex hoc beatam me vocant 
omnes generationes " (Behold, from henceforth all generations 
shall call me blessed). The second light has the figure of 
Christ bearing a sceptre and globe, surmounted by a cross,
